Hey baby, what's your sign?

So, Jeri posted about the new signs. Have you heard about this yet? My husband texted me about it yesterday, and I saw someone mention it on Facebook two days ago.

Apparently a whole lot of people are not too happy at being told they're no longer the sign they thought they were. I'm one of those people.
I have been an Aquarius all my life. Now, I'm a Capricorn? Please.

Well it got me wondering. I figure I should at least look it up and see what it says about me, and see which sign is closer to being correct.

So let's see:

Traditional Aquarian Traits

Friendly and humanitarian--yup,... well maybe. I think I'm friendly and kind, but I don't really DO anything to improve the lives of others. Except maybe my family and that's debatable. LOL

Honest and loyal--yup

Original and inventive--hmmm, not sure. Guess I am a little creative

Independent and intellectual--definitely independent, and maybe a little intellectual, I did well in school, but I'm no Einstein.

On the dark side....

Intractable and contrary--hmm, I don't really think I'm this way, but I probably have my moments. :)

Perverse and unpredictable---Me perverse? never.

Unemotional and detached--Oh yeah. That's me. Seriously.


Practical and prudent--I think so.

Ambitious and disciplined---N.O.P.E. !!!!

Patient and careful--patient, me? Did I tell you about the time my daughter prayed in Primary, in front of EVERYONE, that her mom would find patience? Haven't found it yet.

Humorous and reserved--reserved, yes. I think I'm humorous too.

On the dark side....

Pessimistic and fatalistic--sometimes. I think I do see the cup as half full most of the time, but I don't like tempting fate, so I'll say the opposite of what I mean. Does that make sense?

Miserly and grudging-I'm VERY selfish. So I have to agree with this.

Hmmm, I guess I fit into both. I am right on the border. But then again I probably also have many of the tendencies of all the other signs.

It's just all a bunch of hogwash anyway right?

Maybe I'll invent my own sign. Now, I'm a Capriquarius.

Apparently, CNN posted an article saying that they haven't changed, and not to worry.

I am apparently now an Aries, from a Taurus. I WON'T be an Aries!! I won't!!!

Cherie said...

Yeah I don't think so! I have always been a Libra and I totally and completely fit the Libra mold!
According to the new signs I would be a Virgo...NOT!!!

Merrianne said...

gigi said...

I've got to check this out!!! Hoping I don't change!

Jenny said...

I have always been a Taurus, I don't plan on changing! Although, I will look at what an Aries says.

I have been hearing about this so I went to the post from your blog.
My sign has changed.
I think I'm cranky about that.
I've always been "the age of aquarious"
Now I'm a capricorn. What the heck?
I refuse.
I guess I'll be a capricarious.

Connie said...

No! No! No! I refuse to go from a Leo to a Cancer! They can't do this to us! (can they?)

Oh well, You're right, it's all a bunch of hogwash! (isn't it?)
